Neil H. Deutsch has been practicing law for over 35 years. Until 1986, he served several major corporations, including Dairylea and Panasonic, as Associate General Counsel, and Patent Scaffolding, a construction products division of a Fortune 300 company, as General Counsel. During this period, among his many other responsibilities, he handled employment discrimination matters and negotiated and administered union contracts. In 1986, he began his transition to private practice and soon thereafter became a plaintiff's employment and discrimination lawyer. His practice grew and, as of 2005, he was the sole shareholder of a firm of ten lawyers, paralegals and support staff. Mr. Deutsch has been the host of a radio show, the Employee Rights Forum, been a guest on several TV shows on employment law topics and conducted over 30 seminars for the public on employment and discrimination law. He has litigated many cases and tried them to favorable verdicts for his clients. Several of the cases that he has been involved in have set precedent and been published. One, which reached the New Jersey Superior Court, made it clear that plaintiff's are entitled to a jury trial even if their performance is lacking, so long as there is evidence of discrimination. Another established the principal that independent contractors, as well as employees, may assert claims under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination if they have been terminated for a discriminatory reason. Mr. Deutsch has been selected for inclusion in the New Jersey Super Lawyers list in the area of employment litigation in 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009. He is a skilled negotiator and uses a bottom line approach, emphasizing risk analysis and cost effectiveness, to maximize his client's recovery. Mr. Deutsch is a member of the New Jersey Bar Association, the New Jersey Employment Lawyers Association and the National Employment Lawyers Association. He, along with his Partner, Bruce L. Atkins, formed Deutsch Atkins, P.C. in 2006.
